In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.

Graffiti reading "APE-OCALYPSE NOW" can be seen. This is because the Colonel in this film is reminiscent of Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now (1979). See more »
Chimpanzees unlike humans cannot produce tears. Caesar's tears may be just another morphological change granted by the drugs and the virus. See more »

Halfway into the movie, I wished I could be magically transported into the movie itself as one of the apes... then hopefully be shot and killed so that I could be put out of my misery. The only reason I did not walk out is because I was with my family and I mistakenly thought that they were enjoying the movie. However, as soon as the credits started to roll, my husband announced, "Thank God it's over. That was the worst movie I've ever seen!" All of us agreed. I am so sorry to have wasted that money, but I'm even sorrier about wasting the time that I could have spent doing something else -- ANYTHING ELSE -- with my family. The kicker was when my 11-year-old son sadly concluded that he no longer likes movies. Likewise, my 20-year-old son did not have a kind word to say about it. We've never agreed on anything so strongly before as a family unit. What a shame that we couldn't have bonded over something else.
